Violence against women includes assault, robbery, abduction, and rape. Violence against women cuts across all boundaries of age, race, and culture. Anyone woman can be targeted.
Decades of research consistently finds women who are trained in self-defense are less likely to be targeted as a victim, and are more likely to get away if they are. Warrior Women Self-Defense classes and workshops empower women and teenage girls by teaching them how to identify perpetrator opportunities so they can better be avoided, and how to physically defend themselves in the event a physically violent situation can’t be avoided.
The Warrior Women self-defense curriculum is:
- Reality Based
The situational awareness and physical self-defense techniques are based on the dynamics of the crimes in which women are most frequently victims. Situational awareness includes the tactics used by both asocial and social predators to target their victims. The physical self-defense techniques are chosen from an array of martial arts based on their simplicity and effectiveness.
- Focused on the Essentials
Learning how to effectively defend yourself does not require technical skills acquired through years and years of martial arts training. The critical combination of concepts, targets, and techniques that can save your life can be learned in a day.
- Designed to be Taught by Women
Even today, many women have not witnessed a woman in command. Male co-instructors provide realistic attacker size and strength for ensuring techniques are effectively executed. Female instructors provide a positive female leadership role model, which is an important aspect of women’s empowerment.
